Just last week, Alia Bhatt released an image and announced that she would get the Time100 Impact Award. In any case, the actress presented an acceptance speech during the awards ceremony on Sunday at Singapore's National Gallery. However, Alia's mention of her pregnancy throughout the speech was what grabbed the attention of the audience.
"I want to end with a few thank yous," Alia Bhatt said as she prepared to recognize those who had a significant impact on her life and profession towards the end of her speech. Thank you to you all for patiently listening to me. Thank you to my team, for constantly being there for me. Thank you to my family; my mom for bringing me on to this planet; my father; my sister Shaheen who has helped put my talks into words; my husband Ranbir. I need to give them separate awards for putting up with me on a daily basis.”
She mentioned her pregnancy as she continued to express her pride at being a symbol of her nation, saying, “I am immensely proud to be here tonight as a representative of my country, a country that has built both me and my career. India is a country that values diversity above anything else, and it’s a song that I hope to sing all over the world. And lastly, when it comes to making an impact, I hope I can continue to do so in whatever way possible. But for now, tonight, this award has genuinely made an impact on me—me and my little one, who has relentlessly kicked me throughout this speech. Thank you so much.”
Alia Bhatt, who was most recently seen in Brahmastra, will be making her major Hollywood debut in the movie Heart of Stone starring Gal Gadot. She will also appear opposite Ranveer Singh in Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
